I love Dr. Pepper! I've had a love affair with the Dr. for many, many years. I drink it first thing in the morning and just before going to bed. Don't forget all the hours in between. My students tease me year after year about being a Pepper. I'm a Pepper. Of course, they probably don't know the jingle.
And now there's Dr. Pepper Cherry (not to be confused with the cherry vanilla which it totally gross). Equally as delicious. It tastes like someone opened my DP and poured maraschino cherry juice in it. Lovely.
So, tell me why is soda up to $5 and more a 24-pack these days. Why? Highway robbery! Greg's beloved Pepsi is just as high. Are people really paying that price? Cuz I tell you, we are not.
We've been forced over to the dark side ~ the side of Big K. That's right, you heard me don't make me repeat it. Sniff. Greg drinks Drop Red (some highly caffeine-infused cherry thing) and I'm clutching a Dr. K. We are protesting by only buying the brand name sodas when they are the same price (or lower) as their step-brothers and sisters.
Here we sit...waiting...for the price to come down so I can be a Pepper again.
